B. started work today; I drove him the half hour run as we only have one car here for now. It was a pretty drive.
There's a garden center near Jeff's house; we've been driving by it all week. Since I had the car and the time, I decided it was a good day to stop by and get some ideas and information about gardening in Utah.
Guess Utah has fairies in need of gardens too...the tall "tree" is bronze anise!
day lilies. Don't you love that name?
Hmmm....a garden theme: Church and Spiritual Matters.
These plants are all the same kind, just different colors. Should have gotten a picture of their name...
Hostas work in shade....
Off topic, but I like the name...
I used to give my kid's teacher's miniature roses because there was a grower near our house and all of her mini roses had women's names. It was pretty easy to find a rose with the teacher's name most of the time.
At day break on Easter morning...
(Also for a friend.)
hostas have varying shades of green with either yellow or white edges.
Right along side the nursery was a little stream. I like that.
I realize I have a lot to learn about gardening in a four season area.
Hopefully I can take some classes, read some books, and hire someone to help me design a great garden so I will not have to just go with trial and error design. I'm wanting to put in some great sculptural trees in the garden, and perennials, and those aren't cheap so I want to know what works best.
It is something to look forward to, and to dream about during this upcoming winter.
